It is a shame that I've had to wait so long to see Democrats excited about an election--an election we have a wonderfully good chance of winning--only to be biffed in the face by my party at the same time. As the country makes a swing to the left, the Democratic party is making a swing to the right--the evangelical right, that is. It's not that I think while they are consciously appealing the the religious they are simultaneously consciously dissing the godless. In fact, I'll say that they have no idea that dissing the godless was even possible since no one gives two shits about what the godless think anyway. Only people whose opinions are respected by others can truly be offended.

I understand what you're saying and I agree. At the same time, though, it's very hard not to feel as though it's a lot of hand-holding. I just don't have the patience. What you're saying is a much more realistic and calm stance in the given situation. For me--for my personal tastes--I hate to cater to them. I hate the idea of including atheism with a faith gathering--it validates them--it makes it seem like what we're doing and thinking are comparable, and it's not. I find it difficult to separate 'uneducated' with 'malicious' and/or 'close-minded,' since most of the maliciousness and close-mindedness comes from being uneducated. We're talking adults; we're talking adults with a reasonable amount of basic education. I can never find an excuse for the kind of ignorance that keeps us in the stone ages.

I just get a bit fired up, is all. :)
